In this Group: Mildred, Hadija, Deborah, Hope, Rhonah, Kagwa, Annet, Hope
Midred is a married woman with three children; she operates a drug shop in the Rutooma trading centre along Mbarara – Ibanda Road. She had been bowed down with rent and now is building in the trading centre so that she can cut some of the business costs and increase her income. She therefore needs the loan to complete her building in the same trading centre.

She requested loan of ugx.750,000= to help her finish, and also will use a part of it to pay school fees, because her husband, who is a teacher, earns little and can’t afford to run the family and pay school fees for the kids.

Her major challenge is the increase in prices of building materials, and yet even the business itself can’t afford to maintain the whole needs of the family.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
